Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..."

A One Dollar Estate Sale Find

Today, I'm sharing another neat little estate sale find from this last weekend.

It's just a simple little wood frame from the early thirties.  My dad's baby picture is in a frame made with the same exact molding and he was born in that decade, so that's my best estimate.  It had no glass, and I think I've decided I like it that way...I want to keep it really simple to use as a small seasonal addition to be tucked into tabletop arrangements.

I visited The Graphics Fairy and found a pretty vintage pumpkin that I thought would be perfect.  I then printed it on heavy card stock, which helps it to stay in the frame since there's no glass.  

Here, I've put it on the platter with apples and added the pumpkin candy dish to carry the pumpkin theme for fall.

This sweet little frame was on the dollar table.  I love it when I find inexpensive little treasures that cry out to me to take them home...I'm glad I was listening.

I'll share more treasures from the sale in the next post...Until then, have a great week!
